This Perl library for Linux OS interfaces with the Bloomberg Server API and B-Pipe data feed products; it is not available for the Desktop API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access of the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website.
